They set up a 'living history encampment' (you're lookin' at it - the whole thing...).

The most entertaining part for me was a conversation I had with one of the leaders who was just arriving. He went off on how some of these guys just didn't get it - their uniforms were wrong for the time, they were wearing watches and carrying cell phones, they hadn't studied history and they were just flat out doing it Wrong.

He reminded me so much of all those Civil War re-enactment fanatics. But he was touchy when I mentioned this. He said well, some people call them re-enactments but he calls what they do Living History. I didn't stick around long enough to hear him share with his troops his opinion of their watches and cell phones.
